Home-made

Markets stock German sauerkraut, Korean kimchi, French and Greek yogurt, Japanese miso, Russian kombucha, and Egyptian Kvass.  Some of these foods may be pasteurized rendering the beneficial cultures useless.  They may contain synthetic stabilizers making digestion difficult.  Powdered probiotic starters lack potency and are single use.  Kefir Grains will live forever!

Dairy-free, Vegan Approved

There are two categories of Kefirs.  Dairy Kefirs and Water Kefirs.  Water Kefirs are more versatile and may be infused with flavor and medicinal herbs.  Coconut Water Kefir is a popular brew (See Recipes for more information).
